Orange Ochre - 50ml


Orange ochre, is another unusual and unique paint from Rublev. Its source is the same as the other French earths, from the last remaining European company operating the ochre deposits in the French quarries of Gargas and Rustrel nestled in a 12 mile long enclave in the heart of the Luberon Massif.

I love earth paints, the organic structure leading to multiple and variable refractions of light are transmitted to our brains, and for this reason often stand visually beyond the lakes and cadmiums.

This particular earth, is an opaque orange yellow, in it's tinted form (white added) it has strong flesh overtones, and will have fascinating possibilities for the portrait painter.
